Great sound here..The boys were haven fun in this intimate setting. Taping was officially OK'd during this run. I love this little stint and the playing was pretty tight with a flaw or two..who fucking cares! I don't seek perfection..I seek the sound. Always fun in Berkeley and this show does not disappoint..so please.GIVE IT A WHIRL.Forever>Grateful>Forever Dead…LIFER@!@!@!@!@!

Love the nonsense of ragging on others on this website, We all have our thoughts on any giving show. So who is to say who is rite or wrong? I wont names but I think the person might get the jest of who am speaking of. These shows were the balls, POWERFULL B C T run in 84. I like these shows here better then the next 2 years they played there.
I too was at each and everyone of these shows, but that doesn't make me an expert on sound or performance. The ones who taped these shows sure know there stuff. I give it 5 stars because of the sound and trippyness " ya I know it's not a real word " Rock on DARK SIDE you hit it rite on the nose.

Silly hippy drippy nonsense below aside, this was a great run, was at all 6, and this was my favorite after 11/2. This is a very underrated show. Great year, '84 and '85 were fantastic years on tour then the stadium bs started in '86 then dylan covers and in the dark and nitrous and touch heads and it was all over. I had a good rode from '72-'85 so I won't complain, even saw some real good shows after '85 the crowd was just horrible at that point. Check out all of these BCT shows.

Subject: Great show
fantastic show, not a bad song in it. Terrapin>Jam is truely amazing give it a listen. very powerful show all around. As for the sound quality, the soundboard is great, as is the FOB, really it took me a some time to notice the source had changed, and theres no jarring cuts.
Finally as for jerry man he is on, voice aside of course but its not too bad i suppose.

Nice! My favorite part has to be where Jer's riffing on J.S. Bach during the space. What a loss.

Subject: heavy, man
The Terrapin>Playin>China Doll is some of the darkest, heaviest shit you will ever hear. The dark side of the force.
